Mets | Jacob deGrom dominant

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 20:52:55 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom tied career highs with seven innings pitched and 11 strikeouts Tuesday, July 8, against the Atlanta Braves. He did not allow a run or walk with seven hits. Only two other pitchers in franchise history have had a pair of 11-strikeout performances in their first 11 major league outings - Nolan Ryan and Dwight Gooden.

Mets | Dillon Gee will pitch again Friday

Tue, 01 Jul 2014 15:02:45 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) will pitch another rehab start Friday, July 4, with Single-A Brooklyn.

Fantasy Tip: Gee's return is near and he is worth a look in mixed leagues, if he is available. Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jacob deGrom are the candidates to lose their rotation spot, with Matsuzaka returning to the bullpen the likely scenario.

Mets | Dillon Gee returning soon

Mon, 30 Jun 2014 14:48:44 -0700

New York Mets SP Dillon Gee (lat) is only expected to return from the disabled list for one major league start before the All-Star break. He made his second rehab start and threw 55 pitches over 2 2/3 innings Sunday, June 29. SPs Daisuke Matsuzaka and Jacob deGrom should each be assured two starts apiece before Gee returns.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom and Dice-K are the most vulnerable to lose their rotation spot to Gee following the All-Star break. We'd bet on the Mets moving Matsuzaka back to the bullpen over a demotion for deGrom.

Mets | Jacob deGrom could be moved to bullpen

Sat, 21 Jun 2014 10:49:14 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom, who is 0-2 with a 7.80 ERA in three starts this month, could be moved to the bullpen when SP Dillon Gee (lat) is activated from the disabled list. "Certainly (deGrom's) stuff could play in the bullpen," manager Terry Collins said. "The issue is his durability. Can he get up every day? Can he get up three days a week? That becomes the question - any time you're looking at a young pitcher who has not pitched out of the bullpen, are they going to be able to get up and get their arm ready? And if they get up, how long is it going to take to get their arm ready, because sometimes they've got to speed it up. One of the things we're going to have to do is watch him early and make sure we give him enough time to get loose." SP Daisuke Matsuzaka is another option to be moved to the bullpen when Gee rejoins the rotation.

Mets | Jacob deGrom impresses again

Sat, 31 May 2014 20:38:27 -0700

New York Mets SP Jacob deGrom left in the seventh inning Saturday, May 31, against the Philadelphia Phillies with a one-run lead, but took a no-decision in a game which eventually went to extra innings. DeGrom struck out 11 batters, but matched Ron Darling as the only pitcher in franchise history to start his career with four quality starts and no wins to show for his efforts.

Fantasy Tip: With Rafael Montero demoted back to the minors, deGrom appears to have a spot in the rotation for the immediate future. He is worth adding in all NL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats if you need pitching depth. He has been a pleasant surprise.

Mets | Won't skip Rafael Montero, Jacob deGrom

Fri, 16 May 2014 15:04:24 -0700

The New York Mets don't plan to skip SP Rafael Montero in the starting rotation next time through. The team plans to limit Montero to 180 innings this year. SP Jacob deGrom, who threw 147 2/3 innings last season, will likely be capped around 175 innings. Because of deGrom's nice debut Thursday, May 16, it's unknown which rookie will be sent to the bullpen when SP Dillon Gee (lat) returns from the disabled list. Manager Terry Collins said it's unlikely both Montero and deGrom remain in the rotation when Gee returns.

Fantasy Tip: Montero and deGrom are both top pitching prospects for the team. Montero is more intriguing for fantasy baseball owners, though, and we expect he'll be kept in the rotation over deGrom, depending on both pitcher's results in the next few weeks.

Mets | Dillon Gee to DL, Jacob deGrom to start

Wed, 14 May 2014 12:02:20 -0700

The New York Mets placed SP Dillon Gee (lat) on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lat Wednesday, May 14, and recalled SP Rafael Montero from Triple-A Las Vegas in a corresponding move. SP Jacob deGrom will take Gee's place in the rotation and make his major league starting debut Thursday, May 15.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom is one of the team's top pitching prospects. Scoop him up immediately if he's available in your NL-only league.

Mets | Gonzalez Germen to DL, Jacob deGrom recalled

Tue, 13 May 2014 08:53:31 -0700

The New York Mets placed RP Gonzalez Germen (flu) on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 13, and recalled SP Jacob deGrom from the minors in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: deGrom is expected to pitch out of the bullpen, so he has little to no fantasy value at this time.

Mets | Rafael Montero to join rotation

Mon, 12 May 2014 13:07:20 -0700

New York Mets SP Rafael Montero will be recalled from the minors and will make the start Wednesday, May 14, against the New York Yankees. SP Jenrry Mejia will move to the bullpen. SP Jacob deGrom is on standby and could also be added to the roster later this week.

Fantasy Tip: Montero is one of the club's top pitching prospects that succeeds without a dominant fastball thanks to plus control of his pitches. Montero should be added in all NL-only leagues.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia may not stick in rotation

Sat, 10 May 2014 14:45:41 -0700

New York Mets SP Jenrry Mejia might not take his next turn in the rotation. If he moves to the bullpen, the Mets will call up someone from Triple-A Las Vegas to take his spot.

Fantasy Tip: Expect Jacob deGrom or Rafael Montero, more likely the former, to get the call. Either is a fine pickup in NL-only games and could show occasional deep-mixed value this year.
